We urge you to think strongly about how your opposition to LNG developments is causing harm to our people and our wellbeing. Opposition does nothing towards empowering our Nation, but rather dismisses our Rights and Title and works towards separating our people from real benefits.

On this morning’s round table Adam Stirling noted that in some cases hereditary means literally what we all think it means, but it can also mean appointed to the position of heriditary chief. It’s all a little complicated.

In December, Mayor Lisa Helps brought a motion to council to indicate to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation that Victoria doesn't want a casino, but she says Councillor Mari-Anne Alto made an amendment, which may keep the possibility on the table. "I don't remember the exact wording, but it's something like 'Unless it's a casino run by First Nations.' And the complicated, challenging piece for all of us, and she made a very strong argument, was 'what right do we have to tell Indigenous Communities what self-determination looks like.'"


Funny, just last week Her Worseship was OK with telling some Indigenous folks - those who were OK with the LNG pipeline - what self-determination looks like.

Would love [not really] to hear Lisa's thoughts on this:




First Nations group close to tabling a Trans Mountain pipeline offerA group of First Nations plans to put a bid to buy part of the Trans Mountain pipeline before the federal government by April or May.


Whispering Pines First Nations Chief Mike LeBourdias says they have met with all the stakeholders from the banks to industry and it is now time to put the final pieces of the proposal together.


“There is an election in November so we are going to put a preemptive bid in front of him so that is a yes or no before the election. I think it will be a good enough proposal that he will say yes because it makes sense for all of us. We want to have truth and reconciliation. We want to have partnership with Canada and this can be the start of that. This can be a model.”


LeBourdias says the finalized offer will be made within months.


“Probably late spring so April or May-ish.”




[Whispering Pines FN is in the interior around Clinton, BC.]

^ So "sell us the pipeline at a discount and finance it for us or we will block your efforts"?

I can’t help but think this involves 100% vendor financing or guarantees. what is the bands expertise on running or building a pipeline?
